October 7th – 9th
Chico Hot Springs, Montana
Rachel Gooen and Lisa Gerber
Everything starts with you.
One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is time away on your own to reflect and develop yourself in light of your profession. We offer you the opportunity to develop your potency to shine. To shape your story of how you work to protect the earth and care for people and make space for YOU at the same time.
Now is the time for you to start with yourself, what is fulfilling and what needs to be removed, where do you need to grow, so you can do the heavy work of your organization. To learn how to clearly share the story of how your organization is a lot of work… it is everyone’s work.
You will leave this retreat ready to live a life you are excited about and be proud of. Whether you feel stuck, short of your potential or even fired up and doing great, there is no more important thing than taking time to do some good focused work without the distractions of the day to day.
In this two-day retreat in relaxing and stunning Chico Hot Springs, Rachel Gooen and Lisa Gerber will take you on a personal journey to help you reset, restore and rewrite.
We will think well, eat well, and be well. Most importantly, you will gain clarity around your goals and the telling of your stories – transforming the stories that no longer serve you into the stories that deliver and serve you well. It’s time for a new story. Your power; your story.
We will begin at 4pm on the 7th and leave at 3pm on the 9th.
- October 7th: welcome, intention-setting, getting to know each other. Dinner together.
- Day 1, October 8th: Find your power: Led by Rachel, we will: Clarify inner wisdom, identify obstacles, and share a vision of yourself with other attendees.
- Day 2 October 9th: Tell your story: Your story is your gift to the world. On day 2, we’ll take all the rich soil we just uncovered on day 1 and learn how to use story to step into your power and stand up for what matters for you and your organization.
Your power. Your story. Through writing, art, movement and neuroscience, you will leave with a clear picture and plan to move forward into your potency.
Are you ready to take this time and space to design the next few years of your life? Let’s do this.
